The Black Drongo (Dicrurus macrocercus) is a wholly black bird with a distinctive forked tail. Feeding on insects, it is common in open agricultural areas and light forest throughout its range, perching conspicuously on a bare perch or along power or telephone lines. The species is famous for its aggressive behavior towards much larger birds, such as crows, never hesitating to dive-bomb any birds of prey that invade its territory. The informal name of King Crow is based on this behavior.

The Greater Racket-tailed Drongo, Dicrurus paradiseus, is distinctive in having elongated outer tail feathers with webbing restricted to the tips. They are conspicuous in the forest habitats often perching in the open and by attracting attention with a wide range of loud calls that include perfect imitations of many other birds. These drongos will sometimes steal insect prey caught or disturbed by other foragers in the flock. They are diurnal but are active well before dawn and late at dusk...

Robin is the most frequently spotted winter garden bird. This little bird can be very aggressive when defending its territory. Robins occasionally nest in unusual and sometimes unsuitable places. In the garden they may choose a spot in a dense hedge or creeper quite close to the ground or they will use an open fronted nest box. They are mainly insect feeders, so a garden managed organically will enable them to find the food they need.

The Oriental Magpie Robin (Copsychus saularis) is distinctive black and white bird with a long tail that is held upright as they forage on the ground or perch conspicuously. They are common birds in urban gardens as well as forests. The birds utter beautiful clear whistles at dawn, repeated on short phrases and are able to imitate other birds’ calls. Its melodious song is strong and varied, with discordant notes and mimicries. They sometimes may abruptly sing during the night.
